Femma is an online women’s health platform. The Femma platform creates and provides paid subscribers with access to products and content that relate to women’s health. Subscribers to the Femma platform can also access confidential telehealth consultations with:
- Associate Doctor
- Associate Practitioner
Our Website, Content and any communications you have with us is of a general nature only and does not take into account your particular circumstances, nor constitute medical advice. It is not intended to diagnose, treat or manage any health condition or disease.
Acceptance of these Terms
Femma reserves the right to review and amend these Terms from time to time at our sole discretion. We will give reasonable notice of any changes. Your continued access to and use of this Website will be conditional on your agreement to such changes.
To attend confidential telehealth consultations and communicate with Associate Doctors and Associate Practitioners you must register for an account with Femma.
Registered account holders must:
- be over 18 years old;
- reside in Australia; and
- be capable of entering into a legally binding agreement with Femma.
You must not provide or reveal your login details to any other person. You are responsible for protecting the security and privacy of your login details and must notify us immediately in the event they are lost or if you know of or suspect any unauthorised use. You are solely responsible for all activity that occurs under your account.
Products and Services
The Femma platform connects you with Associate Doctors and Associate Practitioners; but we do not ourselves provide medical advice or services, nor are we a pharmacy or pathology provider.
Femma takes no responsibility and makes no warranties, express or implied, in relation to the content of any consultation between you and the Associate Doctors or Associate Practitioners. You and the Associate Doctors or Associate Practitioners are responsible for the conduct of the consultation and all information or communications made.
The Associate Doctors or Associate Practitioners take exactly the same personal responsibility for you as they would if they were seeing you in person. The Associate Doctors or Associate Practitioners will make notes of their consultation with you and it is their responsibility to hold and maintain your records as required by law.
Femma may from time to time hold copies of notes made by the Associate Doctors or Associate Practitioners. Femma does not guarantee that an online consultation is the appropriate course of treatment for your particular health care problem. This assessment will be made by the Associate Doctors or Associate Practitioners.
You agree to contact your own doctor immediately should your condition change or your symptoms worsen. If you require urgent care, you should contact your local emergency services immediately.
You agree that if you suffer from any noticeable side-effects, you will contact Femma to facilitate a further consultation with an Associate Doctor or Associate Practitioner.
Femma is not a pharmacy and therefore does not dispense any medicines. You can fulfil your prescription through a pharmacy of your choice by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. In cases where you prefer to use our Associate Pharmacy, Femma will facilitate the supply of medication and payment process as your agent, including passing your payment onto the Associate Pharmacy on your behalf.
Femma’s pricing of pharmacy products is comprised of:
- amounts we collect and pass onto the Associate Pharmacy, for the cost of medications;
- amounts we collect and pass onto the Associate Pharmacy, as a service we provide; and
- providing access to the Femma platform, personal care products and consultations.
This is important as the cost charged for medications is commensurate with the actual Pharmacy charges. No margin is applied to charges for medications.
Femma’s pharmacy fees are charged at the time a checkout is completed. The fee is determined after an Associate Doctor has indicated what (if any) medication is to be prescribed and you have advised whether you wish to receive medication from the Associate Pharmacy, so that (if required) the actual cost of that medication (which we collect and pass on to the Associate Pharmacy on your behalf) can be incorporated into the fee.
Femma’s Associate Pharmacy is Medmate. A copy of the Medmate Terms and Conditions can be found here: https://medmate.com.au/terms-and-conditions/. The pharmacies that Medmate dispense from include:

Subject to any stated refund obligations, we may not be held liable or responsible for their delivery, quality, suitability for your symptom(s) or condition(s), conformity to expected specifications, effects (or lack thereof), or anything directly linked to your ordering and receipt of such medications. You must refer to Medmate’s Terms and Conditions to establish your rights for this.
Femma does not accept returns on pharmacy or over the counter Products purchased from our Associate Pharmacists. Our Associate Pharmacists follow a strict code of professional practice to ensure that the medicines and products they sell have been produced and stored under strict conditions. It would also not be possible for us to confirm whether returned medicines have been stored properly or have been tampered with.
